    Upon further research, that was my mistake, Ron. The book you have is also a limited but wasn't slipcased or signed by Golden. 500 were published. I can't recall what the limitation page of your book looks like though. I only have the deluxe copy.

    Hot damn. Received my copy today. No red box but that is okay. Not really sure what that was about but I'm assuming something to do with Patreon (sp?)? Maybe someone can fill me in.

    I am not just blowing smoke when I say this is one of the nicest looking books I own.

    There is a timeless look to the book cover itself and then I opened it up and was struck by the quality of the book. The weight, binding, and paper are all just very pleasing and give an attitude of quality workmanship. Then the little touches such as the border around the pages elevates it a little more when coupled with the artwork.

    I am really pleased with this purchase.

    Thank you, Brian.Very well done.

    edit: This guy has poor grammar.
    I'm thinking the red box was for Patreon supporters on the level to receive the limiteds.

    Mine was updated to deliver today. Woot!

    I have seen this message before and it is 50/50 that it will actually show up today. However it will either be today or Monday!

    Nice. I'll have to check to see if mine was scanned along with yours.

Do I recall correctly that the 1 - 200 limitations are preferred and have greater aftermarket value? If so, can someone remind me why? Were the 201+ copies effectively 2nd printings or...?
    I could be wrong but I thought the first 200 added a few stories, a slipcase and a signature form the Christopher Golden that were not included in the rest.

    Being the Hill fan that I am; I didn't care too much for 20th CG. I didn't care for Revival either, but Brian's productions of both are outstanding. The Revival Lettered is a point of pride next to my Lettered Suntup Horns. 20th CG will be as well.

    I can't remember if it was mentioned here, but someone suggested Duma Key. I'd love to have a limited of that!
    I absolutely love the stories in 20th Century Ghosts!

I remember reading it years back and unlike most, I found it to be "okay". I thought--and do still think--that the title story is phenomenal but I wasn't blown away by the rest of it. Mind you, I didn't think it was bad. Maybe it was just all the hype. So now, I'm looking forward to settling down with it again and seeing how I feel. Now, Heart Shaped Box blew my socks off...
    I definitely liked 20th Century Ghosts better the second time I read it, though for the life of me I still can't understand the fascination with 'Pop Art'?!

    Will probably give it a third reading sometime this year, especially if Hill doesn't publish any new fiction.
